Walt Disney Company's current CEO, Bob Iger, has announced this week that a new Disney streaming service is planned to launch at the end of 2019.

Many news outlets have speculated from various rumors on what the future of the Disney streaming service may hold. A popular audience of streaming services is, of course, millennials. Netflix is currently ranging from $8 - $15 a month. For a college student, this is doable. BUT between Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. we have enough monthly payments as it is. There's so much out there and we're already happy with what we're used to. What could make us add or switch to the new Disney streaming network?

1. A student discount.

Disney needs to not only be competitive with their pricing but allow a student discount for us brokey broke young adults to try it and love it. Do you know who didn't offer a student discount? YouTube Red. How many college students do you know with a YouTube Red account? Just saying.

2. The OG DCOMs for those good Throwback Thursday movie nights.

Zenon, Motocrossed, Cadet Kelly, Gotta Kick It Up, Read it and Weep... may I say more?

3. PLUS a DCOM Halloween moment with the best movies of all time.

ALL THE HALLOWEEN TOWN MOVIES + TWITCHES PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

4. Exclusive behind the scenes content of our favorite live action Disney movies.

Pirates of the Caribbean

The streaming service would lose interest in the actual Disney DVDs. Behind the scenes content about creating the films are the best parts of DVDs and allowing them to be featured in a streaming service would be a game changer. Who doesn't watch movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and want to see what it was like creating it?

5. First access to any Disney film once it leaves theaters.

Once you see a Disney movie, you're going to want to see it again. The Disney streaming service should allow access to Disney films the moment it leaves theaters for some rewatches, or incase you were too busy to hit up the theaters.

6. Exclusive trailers and sneak peaks to upcoming projects.

Why see it first on YouTube when you can see it first on the Disney streaming service?

7. A wide variety of new and old Disney films, with a constant change in rotation so you never get bored.

As nice as it would be to have all Disney movies ever created just in one general location, it would be good to mix it up with monthly or seasonal changes to keep things interesting.

8. New Disney themed content tailored to all ages, not just the kiddos.

Big Hero 6: TV Show

It's no secret that Disney is a fan of taking their movies and turning them into television series, but don't forget about the Disney loving adults in the world who want some Disney themed content up to the their age level. (Like Once Upon a Time, but different. You're creative, work on it.)

9. Exclusive Disney documentaries about their history and parks.

Because who doesn't want to binge watch five Disneyland documentaries two days before they actually go to Disneyland?

10. More manly mans of Marvel.

AKA: More Chris Pratt.

I mean the other guys are way cool too and we want to see them, but Chris Pratt content is encouraged and appreciated.

11. Don't forget Star Wars, too.

It's not one of the world's biggest franchises for no reason. Don't only include the new Disney Star Wars but the whole series, please.

12. More kick-ass female girl power for when you need it the most.

Maleficent

Disney can always cure a low confidence mood.

13. Content that reminds us that love is real.

Ugh, my heart.

14. And that anything is possible.

Because that's what Disney is all about, right? Creating content to inspire and promote imagination and kindness? The Disney streaming service could provide all of that... and more.

15. Most importantly, did I mention the student discount?

Seriously, please don't over price this streaming service.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
